I did a search here and did not find any post.

Anyone using this for sulfite?

Wouldn't this concoction also raise your pH?
I have read that potassium bicarbonate helps to stabilize pH in water

According to Scott Laboratories the potassium bicarbonate fraction has littler or no effect on PH.

I have used the granular form as well as the tablet, it works well, the packet and tablet sizes are geared towards barrel use providing a specific so2 content etc. The effervescence provides some small amount of mixing to aid even distribution throughout the barrel. I found myself weighing out portions of packets or breaking tablets to get the desired addition for my smaller 30gal tanks, so for me it didn't seem to provide much benefit. I do like the dated packets which help keep track of shelf life.

Gotcha, must be a small part.
